Jagmohan Garg speaks out about 86 years ago Delhi

 

Jagmohan Garg highlights the foundation stone of Delhi was laid by George V, Emperor of India, during the Delhi Durbar of 12 December 1911. Delhi was inaugurated as the capital of British India by Viceroy and Governor-General of India, Lord Irwin, on 13 February 1931.

He also said the territory was first made a region area of Punjab. It was named “New Delhi” in 1927.

The emissary, Lord Hardinge, trusted that “New Delhi” would be prepared inside four years. In any case, he couldn’t have predicted the happening to World War I. The war, which forced stringent subsidizing requirements, influenced the development of the capital of British India.

According to Jagmohan Garg updates it would take 20 years more, until 1931, for the British to authoritatively introduce their new city.
